Oh, I do so wish that this book would be made into a movie!! This is a really touching story about a 12-year old boy named Ambrose, who after a lifetime of bullying by various classmates and overprotective parenting by his mom, is allowed to be homeschooled. Ambrose doesn't really excel at sports, music or school, but is a whiz with Scrabble! When he and his mom find yet another apartment to live in, he is introduced to a jovial Greek couple, whose son returns home from jail. Through unique cirumstances, Cosmos and Ambrose become friends, or something of the sort. This book makes you laugh out loud and feel genuine compassion for the experiences of the characters.
